Nothing. Nothing. Printing!

You tried to print many documents yesterday, but none of them ever appeared on your inkjet printer. When you started your computer this morning, all of the reports you tried to print yesterday suddenly started printing! What is the most likely cause of this issue?

A) The printer driver is corrupted

B) The printer is running low on ink

C) The print spooler is failing

D) The printer jets are clogged

E) The printer only operates on even days. You tried to print on an odd day.

The answer: C) The print spooler is failing

The print spooler is responsible for managing the printing process between the operating system and the printer. If the print job is delayed or hung, then the spooler is probably your issue.
